Lol... really?

I cant even begin to understand why you might say that.

My knee-jerk reaction was: "DAYUM, thats a MILF (Mother I'd Like to Fraternize-with)"

As mothers begin weening, they produce less milk. If she is only breastfeeding once or twice a day, she will produce less.

Also, and more importantly, the size of the breast does not necessarily relate to the amount of milk they can hold. omen with small breasts still produce plenty of breast milk.

Anyone offended by the site of someone breast-feeding should perhaps look into some counseling to explore their possible Oedipus complex.

Mammals feed their offspring with milk. This is normal on planet earth.

Done want to see it? Do look at it!

I think the headline should be:

"right-wing crazies go dipsh*t over something someone else is doing which has no bearing whatever on their existence...!"

Who gives a rats ass about this? Seriously!

What does this have to do with anyone? Why do others seem to believe they have a right to determine how other people raise their kids? He's not being beaten, he's not being brainwashed into a cult, he's not being trained to shoot people... these are all things plenty of those same right-wing nut bars are all guilty of, and they're far more dangerous.

So what if a parent believes that breastfeeding at that age is okay, do you drink milk in your coffee?

All those commenting on this need to take a good long think about their own stupidity. She is his mother, she is also human. Plenty of those screaming about this drink the milk of a completely different species every single day of their lives.

Once again, the right-wing retards are again proven to be retards.

Get off what... extacly?

tons of credible evidence out there suggesting that extended breastfeeding increases brain-capacity, and prevents infectious disease, among other benifits.

articles.timesofindi... a.indiatimes.com/2012-04-26/health/31409864_1_hiv-transmission-infant-breastfeeding-period

So, why so offended about a mother feeding her child? Its not like she's rapeing the kid...



Go ahead, take offence for absolutely no reason... good way to go through the day.

Don't forget who seeded our puritanical ways, it was you Brits.


Yeah, and look how it turned out. The USA is listed behind the UK on democratic standards, you still have the death penalty, you still don't have equality, you still have religious fundamentalists dictating policy...

We have a lot of things wrong in the UK, and we have a bad history, but come on, at least we don't scream "UK! UK! UK!" and think we're something special, slapping ourselves on the back at every opportunity.

Sorry, yes it does. The vast majority of those commenting on the article itself are clearly right-wing. The site itself is right-wing, most of those screaming about this being child abuse and pedophilia are - I would hazard a guess - right-wing. Dipstick.

I haven't heard that word for years. Congrats for sticking with the 1990's!

Excuse me please. I clicked on the link for the THE BLAZE news in the new post. I was blessed with a trojan virus and my virus protection program caught it. Did anyone else have the same thing happen to them?
Now to the topic which we are abreast.....
The picture and headlines are for sensationalism and greed.

www.metroparent.com...

According to Jan Cranston, a La Leche League group leader in Ann Arbor, mothers who continue to nurse their children as toddlers are bequeathing to them even more breast milk benefits. "Some nutrients are there in greater quantities when the child continues to breastfeed into their second year," she says.
Dr. Jack Newman, a lactation consultant in Toronto, Canada, agrees. He says immune factors in breast milk are present in greater amounts in the second year of life than in the first.

In my humble opinion as a veteran breastfeeding Mom of 3 sons......It could be humiliating for the child if done in public. Most Mom's (thankfully) realize that weaning should be accomplished at a much earlier age than three or four.
Have a good one.

Ah a mother breastfeeding a kid. I don't find this shocking at all.
I love how in the US we want everyone out our business unless
we are all up in another person's business. Really don't care
at all.

That said ...

OH MY GOD

After reading comment after comment from ignorant poster who are so over sexualised that they can't separate the single most important biological function out species has from pornography and pedophilia, then maybe America truly is lost.

FACTS:

The average age that a child breast feed in out world and also the natural age for a child to wean themselves if allowed is between 3 and 4 years old

The World Health Organisation STRONGLY recommends exclusive breast feeding for 6 months and then complimentary breast feeding for 2 or more years. Breast feeding should start within the first hour. Breast feeding should be on demand, WHEN EVER the baby needs it day or night.

Breastfeeding is a MASSIVE benefit for mothers. When done exclusively is associated with a natural method of birth control (98% of protection in the first 6 months after birth). It reduces risks of breast and ovarian cancer later in life, helps women return to their pre-pregnancy weight faster, and lowers rates of obesity

Adults who are breast fed are healthier and smarter

Source

Attachment parenting is a ridiculous Westernised name for, simply and purely, parenting.

It is only our societies cost of living, debt rate and selfishness that drives parent and particularly mothers back to work and therefore stopping them from performing their most important role for society, which is the raising of the children.

The reason that our youth are so disfranchised is because the parents in our society think that children automatically owe them respect.

Rubbish!!! - we need to earn our children's respect and we need to work hard at it.

Just think how you, as an adult, react to another demanding your respect and your obedience for no other reason than they are older then you or they are your boss and just think how you react to another who earns and wins your respect and then your cooperation.

It works exactly the same way for children.

What a world we would live in now if our parents, grand parent and great grand parents had worked hard at earning their children's respect rather than demanding it.

Those doctors or so called doctors aren't the end all be all when it comes to anything.

Yet you try to claim that being a nurse or emt gives you credibility. First off, no one goes to an emt for breastfeeding advice. And being a nurse, unless your specifically a lactation consultant, doesn't give you any credibility either. Yet the people who do study this, aren't the be all,as you say, because they don't agree with your EMT experienced opinion.


You do not get any benefits from it except a catered to spoiled little itch.

Oh so now your a behavioral specialist to such an advanced degree that you have studied hundreds of extended breastfeeding children and came up with the appropriate terminology.
There is a lot of benefit to breastfeeding, even until the ages of 3 and 4. Breastmilk is the most nutritious food for a child.It reduces obesity. Children who are bf beyond the age of two have much lower incidents of illness, and if they are sick, for much shorter durations. They have fewer allergies. And the longer children are breastfeed, their higher their IQ.
The old school mantra of depriving children died a long time ago, you need to catch up. Studies have shown that supporting dependancy needs of children, fosters security and independance.

Because someone never taught them the word no.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the debate. And you certainly don't know how this mother, or any mother, raises their child, and what their methods are. But I guess your crystal ball tells you how well every parent is doing all around the world.

I don't trust doctors anyway. I had the best peditricians in the world and they never promoted this.

You managed to contradict yourself in a single statement. You dont trust doctors, but suddenly, what your pediatrician has to say is viable because it supports your biased, knee jerk reaction. Did you even breastfeed or have the discussion with them? Would it even matter because you don't trust them? Doctors rarely promote anything other then vaccinations and fluoride treatments.

But there are less and less good doctors now, sadly.

YOu don't trust them so how do you know if they are good or not? Do you have any scientific data to back this up or are you also pulling this out of your ass? I guess all those doctors who are now coming out with advanced, life saving medicine should just hang it up sonce there are no good doctors, apparently.

I mean just as other people have mentioned do you see Native American continuing breastfeeding that long?
Do you live on a reservation?
In the rest of the world, not just Native Americans, the average age to wean is 3-4. WHO recommends 2 years minimum. The AAP recommends as long as the child needs it.

And the longer children are breastfeed, their higher their IQ.

Do you think they did that in the stone age when the little guy was actually expected to be a little more self sufficient because of survival issues back then?

This is the dumbest statement I have heard yet. You have tried to use selfishness, dumb doctors, native americans to support your statement as a basis for your your arguement. Know one knows how long they breastfed, as their are not "stone age" mothers around. But it is very possible that the answer is yes, as the longer a child nurses, there is an increase in nutrients, fat, and energy in the breastmilk.

You are the most uneducated "nurse" I have come across.


This is what is the down fall of humanity.

Feeding children is the downfall of humanity? More likely not feeding children will be the downfall of humanity. WHO reports that if the percentage of mothers breastfeeding went up, it will immediately reduce child mortality by 10%.
Yes, showing care to our children is the downfall of humanity.


Kittens only get 6 weeks ok given they have a shorter life span but in relation to their lifetime 10-16 years that is a very small percentage of that lifetime.

Kittens will acutally nurse 15 weeks or more if they weren't whipped away by human owners.Are you actually comparing humans to felines?

Then they are expected to be fully self reliant...

They are solitary animals while humans are pack animals. Your embarassing me with your ignorance. And I won't even touch the extreme ignorance that children who are breastfed end up gay. By your responce here, I will summarize that a lack of breastfeeding leads to stupidity and bigotry.

World keeps changing fast and I see no evidence the continuous acceptance of this new-age BS makes it any better. I grow older and less liberal with each passing day, and would gladly live in a world where I don't have to see this crap shoved in my face.

Come back to ATS when you are able to grow up.


Again ... Hear Hear!

This goes to any and all ATS members that suggest that breastfeeding a child of 3 is sexual.

It makes me feel physically disgusted to hear this.
